Alderton Road consists of the renovation and extension of a terraced house in Croydon. Through discussions with the client, we developed a brief to expand and reinvigorate their terraced house to create more space for their growing family. The design extends the living space, creating a high vaulted space at the rear drawing with porthole windows bringing much needed light into the open-plan kitchen + dining area. Arched openings are used to obscure structural elements whilst serving to zone the space into cook, eat and play. Timber cladding inside and out adds definition to the simple, playful geometries which are designed to excite and inspire the client's children.
